I just started running Karazhan. I did a full clear last week. I am currently saving badges for my next piece. I have 65ish. Not sure if I should get 10 more and go for the belt (Girdle of the Fearless) or save them and go straight for the 100 badge chest.

I run Heroic Slave Pens almost everyday trying to get the belt off Quag, but it just hasn't dropped. My gloves are a fairly weak slot as well.

Shoulders I know I need something, but I can't seem to get into Gruul's to save my life. Its hard enough trying to find a Karazhan crew...

People always want to know your stats.... but when they are a enhancement shaman in full PvP wellfare, I just don't think that telling them about my avoidance would make a difference. I am getting the impression that in order to find groups, the most important stat is stamina. I'm pretty close to breaking 14k, but I just don't want to spend the money on epic gems.

Any suggestions?

With your gear, I'd suggest the cloak first, Slikk's Cloak of Placation, then the ring, Ring of the Stalwart Protector, and then the belt, Girdle of the Fearless.

I couldn't help myself and I went for the 100 badge chest. I really just wanted to get out of PvP gear. I have one piece left to replace (shoulders) and I'll have to wait for T4. I lost on it the other day to an offspec because the masterlooter wasn't reading raid chat. /cry.

I am definitely going for the back piece next. Then it'll be belt and ring. I feel like I want the belt first, but the ring is really amazing, so I might go by your suggestion.

I am also doing Heroic MGT now for the trinket. After I get all those items, I feel my tanking gear will be about as far as I'll take it before the expac.

I started working on my PvP gear again actually, just for fun. Grinding honor for the bracers and then the belt.

Ok, now I am getting stuck again....

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Bleeding+Hollow&n=Disoteka)

I am running Heroic MGT whenever I can get a good group for the trinket. It never drops though....getting frustrated. I am 29 badges from getting the Sunwell ring. After a heroic MGT today and a full Kara clear I'll grab that. I am also trying to make the Goblin Rocket Launcher. I just landed in Tanaris and I'm turning in the Goblin Engineering quest, so then I just need to farm some mats for it. Hopefully I will have that tonight.

After the ring, I will be saving 75 badges for the Girdle of the Fearless. I think I will be pushing 16k HP at that point. I am running Karazhan once on my mage to by some epic gems, gonna go for +15 stamina.

I feel like I am missing something. I still have trouble getting into kara... People think 14.5k-ish HP is too low to MT. Even though I have 16.5k armor and like 47% avoidance...

I really want the Deck of Furies, but I don't have the gold for it. Are there other upgrades I'm missing?

People that think your stats aren't enough for Kara suck and want to be carried through content by massively overgeared players. Unfortunately there's no changing their misconceptions either :(

Sticking purely to trinkets, I'd say the only thing you've missed is Commendation of Kael'thas if you get lucky. If you have 300 riding (which I doubt given your comment about lack of gold) you could get Commander's Badge in the mean time. Other than that there's Violet Badge but that involves doing Kara.

Yeah, I hope to have 300 riding by the release of WOTLK, but I don't have it on this character yet. I got it on my mage and then changed my warrior to my main like a week later. =(

I have the Violet Eye trinket, I just feel I would look like a scrub using it as a tanking item. I save it for the second boss of H MGT and Curator.

I think the rocket launcher will do me good, because I can use it as a pulling thing to. People say it gets a good 1k-1.2k threat as a starter. That's the same amount as the avengers shield.

I guess I just gotta keep running heroic MGT. I want the Shard of Contempt, too. Not sure if I'll get that one. I have the sword (use it for Off-Hand dps) and the chest (also for DPS) from the last boss. I even got the bag.... All I need is the dang trinket!
